This B&M stand up coaster opened in 1996. It features a 137 ft first drop and 4 inversions, including a 119 ft vertical loop that has great hangtime. Many of the standard B&M elements are included...the dive loop, the inclined loop, and the flat spin are all here. This ride is fun, but beware of the over the shoulder restraints. Cedar Point announced in September 2014 that the ride will close on Oct. 19, 2014 for conversion into the floorless Rougarou.
